“The one thing I think they really did right was the romance,” said the star.

“I gotta be honest, [compared with] the majority of superhero movies that I’ve seen, I think we do a really good job establishing a romance,” Evans told MTV. “It’s a budding romance, it’s early.

“I don’t want to give too much away,” he continued. “But I will say everything else in the movie aside, the one thing I think they really did right was the romance.”

Co-star Hayley Atwell, who plays the Cap’s on-screen love interest, agreed.
 
“It’s got a strong, sincere love story running through it,” she added. “Captain America has a sincerity. He’s earnest, and there is a vulnerability about him. He’s not your typical testosterone-fueled man.”

Sebastian Stan, the actor behind Bucky, has a slightly different take when it comes to luring the ladies to the theater.
 
“I feel like you can drive a car on Chris’ chest,” he joked. “That might help.”
